part d, and iraq and afghanistan on the credit card. so, democrats like me, and i even think that bernie are absolutely opposed to raiding social security, or raiding medicare to supplement the tax cuts for the wealthy, and on the other hand, to the extent that we do anything with social security, like for instance, should we raise the cap? i e kind kind of think we shoul because it raises more money into the social security, but it has to go there to make sure that the program is solvent. we would resist the president if his approach, and he has not outlined what it is, but to take away benefits on medicare and social security. >> what do you say to the constituents who look at this impasse, these stalled talks and say, look at washington. they can't address the commitments that have been made financially, that we need to pay for. they can't even get to the bottom of an agreement on this issue. >> i e say thsay they are right. there is an enormous frustration with the american public of having a debate as if paying the bills is optional. a great country has a great commitmen
overnight or afghanistan overnight. so you are kidding yourself if you think there are instant savings. and the administration is cautious and it can look around and there was a remarkable hearing on the hill this morning where you had republican freshman house members chastising a former republican senator for being too much of a lobbyist for the defense industry and the administration can say, the climate is different and we have an opportunity here, and let's make use of it. >> thank you so much, heather. >> thank you, ezra, for having me. >> and now over to washington, d.c. where twistery has been made. >> first of all, everybody can sit down. it is much easier to tweet from a seated position. >> i understand that you want to start the conversation off with a tweeter here. >> i want to make history here as the first president to live tweet. so, we have a computer over here. >> and with that, the first twitter town hall began. initially 720,000 tweets were send to the president, and 20,000 tweets on jobs and another 15,000 on the budget. and while the president fielded 18 twitter qu
route for aid into afghanistan, so i think what's happening now is that calmer heads are starting to prevail, and i think if these one-on-one talks with the head of the cia and the head of the isi and perhaps with secretary clinton, you're going to see an opportunity to salvage this very important but very tense and troubled relationship. >> indeed. thanks so much for your insight. >>> next, the murdoch hacking scandal moves to the halls of capitol hill. stay with us. us restoring rinse. it's the only listerine® that gets teeth two shades whiter and makes tooth enamel two times stronger. get dual-action listerine® whitening rinse. building whiter, stronger teeth. >>> another high-stakes meeting at the white house begins in just under 40 minute, but it's hard to exaggerate how serious this situation has become, with both sides apparently at loggerheads over how to raise the debt ceiling by the beginning of august. congresswoman loretta sanchez is a congresswoman from california, and i'm delighted to say she joins us. good afternoon. >> good afternoon. thanks for having me. >> do

them in his kingdom. this is a war of religion in the country and not different from afghanistan, and a few less people are getting shot. but you know, we have talked on the last show about this book of mine "sex, god and mom," and people who read that book understand that religion impacts politics and you brought up michele bachmann and i read today where she was saying that she got into politics by reading my late father francisç shea's books on calling for the people to overthrow the government and unless it sent roe v. wade back to the courts for decision to take choice away from women. this element is prevalent in the united states right now, and we can't kid ourselves, because it is extremism under the form of christianity. >> thank you, frank. >>> and now, like the fall of communism, some are beginning to suggest that multiculturalism has had the day. in the last few months a number of world leaders from prime minister david cameron in the uk to chancellor angel la ameria mm germany have spoken of the fall of this. and just as europe have developed a single currency and
at the facts, they don't appear to have a vast number of military involved in the operations in afghanistan or iraq. there doesn't appear to be a particular reason for why that nation should be targeted. >> well, norway does have special forces operating around kabul, has had for a long time, and has declined to remove them. and inspite of, you know, multiple warnings from zawahiri and others, and if you look at the internet buzz on the gjihad websites that is why norway would be attacked, and another possibility is that there was a norwegian magazine a few years ago that republished the danish cartoons that muslims found offensive, and that was mentioned today, even though the norwegian government apologized for that publication. there was a thwarted attack last year that al qaeda central was believed to be responsible for. so it is not as if this is something that has been pristine in terms of threats. this is the country that has seen a number of threats, and i think that also having president obama make that statement publicly today indicates that the u.s. government at least believes i
